Why does troybilt generator engine keeps shutting off when throttle is moved from choke to run position?


Give it a shot of starting fluid. If it runs initially, then most likely the jets on the carbureator are clogged. You should remove the carb and clean/rebuild it.

What would cause a pressure washer to cut off after you pull the handle to get the water started


We used power washers for years

When you pull the trigger, the engine is supposed to accelerate because the back-pressure on the pump is released.

The back-pressure is why you're supposed to keep the gun trigger open when starting the engine. It sounds like you're starting the engine with no water passing through the gun.

Inspect the exhaust port >> if exhaust is clogged with carbon or dirt, then the engine will not run at high speed.

The problem may also be cause by a rusted choke lever. If you notice when a small engine accelerates, the choke lever moves up as the carburetor demands more gas.

Start the engine with water passing through the gun >>> move the choke lever a little bit at a time and see what happens. Keep water going out of the gun. When the surfaces are cool, spray WD-40 on the lever and see if you can free it up. WD-40 is extremely flammable.

If your engine will not fire at all by starting with water passing through the gun, then your gas supply might be limited or your carburetor gummed up. Pull off the rubber gas line that connects to the carburetor and see if gas flows.

Next, pull off the air filter and see if the machine runs good without air filter. You may have clogged air filter.

While the carburetor is exposed, spray WD-40 into carburetor. See if you can get engine up to full throttle while spraying WD-40 into carburetor. Keep spraying the WD-40. Keep the water flowing out of the gun.

If the engine throttles up all the way on WD-40 but won't run without it, then your carburetor is probably gummed up.

Our old power washer won't run with the choke set at full throttle. We just got into the habit of leaving the choke alone. We'd pull off the air filter and spray WD-40 into the carburetor so the engine would spark healthy without messing with the choke at all. And we kept the choke about 2/3 open all the time.

Model EXVRB2321 would run only with full choke,


What engine is it? The plug gap should be preset, But I'm glad you mentioned the compression, it should be 100 lbs.. , 70 lbs min, or it won't start. You might have a valve burned out from the choke being on. Most engines won't run with the choke on, so something was wrong. You can pull the head and the valves easy enough to see what it is. One more thing, make sure there is nothing holding the engine back from running, like the pressure washer is full and ready to go, let the pressure out if you can. Hope this helps.

Troy-bilt 2200 psi pressure washer


I have a Troybilt Model 2200 PSI Pressure Washer in which I have used only 2 times in the past 2 1/2 years. Went to use it this past weekend and the pump in not working. Water shoots out of the side. I bought this brand and model as I thought Troybilt was suppose to be so good. Went back to where it was purchased and had no success but to say I could buy another pump or take it in to be repaired. I believe that this power washer should be replaced at no charge. 2 uses does not constitute a few hundreds of dollars.
Have you to heard anything concerning pump problems on this particular model? Thanks for any advice. .

I have a union power pressure washer it runs for 10 minutes and then cuts off and wont work again, it still needs the choke on when the engine is warm and only runs for a few seconds


"it still needs the choke on when the engine is warm and only runs for a few seconds"
This sounds like a fuel problem such as the carb needs cleaning
